About Ruth's Chris Steak House - Charlotte - South Park

Welcome to Ruth's Chris Steak House. As founder Ruth Fertel used to say, "If you've ever had a filet this good, welcome back." We take steak seriously, but we're also serious about making sure you have a good time. So you won't find the stodgy, uptight attitude you might find at other steak houses. Our SouthPark location, created in the classic Southern style, features a spacious dining room and private dining areas. Surrounded by dark hardwoods and artisan tiling, you'll feel as if you're back in New Orleans. All beef is USDA Prime, prepared in 1800 degree broilers and served on 500 degree plates, and all accoutrements inspired by Ruth's New Orleans heritage. Let us know of any specific requests for an evening with that special someone, and we'll take care of the details. Life's too short to eat anywhere else.

Food was delicious as always. My only complaint was that the sides were not hot. It was Queens Feast so I attribute the sides temp issue to that.
My server was excellent!!

Our server Amber was terrible. She made our experience at Ruth Chris miserable. I have been there many times and never have been treated the way we did this past weeekend. She forgot to bring us our drinks and then when asked where they were replied “Sorry, I’m not use to bringing out drinks that are non-alcoholic.” After each course we sat there with our empty plates in front of us for far to long. All of the times I have been to Ruth Chris, I have never had to stare at my cold leftovers before they were removed. At the end of the evening, we had to ask for our check. Instead of bringing it to our table and saying thank you for coming, she went to the table next to us to take their order. With her back to us she laid our check on our table without even turning around. She kept talking to the table next to us and did not even LOOK at us while giving us our check.
My family has visited Ruth Chris numerous times in different cities, so we expected to have extraordinary service because that is what we have always experienced. However, our evening was ruined due to the way we were treated at your restaurant.

The food was fantastic, steak cooked perfectly, delivered timely, great meal. The service was exceptional, we had to wait a little bit for our reservation and received a complimentary glass of champagne, since we were there celebrating a birthday. They really took care of us. Really enjoyed our time.

Ruth Chris has always been one of my favorite restaurants. And I've NEVER gotten bad service nor a bad meal from them. And this time was no different, The place was packed for restaurant week and we didn't have to wait long for our table. It was noisy but that was no biggie and we had a very good waiter. The food was OUTSTANDING!! I'd HIGHLY suggest making reservations if you go during this time. You won't be disappointed!!

Terrible service, food quality and overall experience. We had a 4:45pm reservation, waited 20 min to be seated, finally seated and more time was spent waiting for a waiter. Finally ordered and the food took an inordinate amount of time to be delivered. During the waiting, our bread was not refilled (originally given one loaf for 7 people) until we asked and then we had to wait a while for it to come. Once our food came the crab cake appetizers were too salty and not as they normally taste. After waiting a long time between appetizers and main course, our steaks were delivered and out of 6 steaks, 3 were cooked incorrectly. RC must have reduced the size of it’s side orders for Restaurant Week because even though we paid full price because we ordered from the regular menu, our sides were much smaller. We finished our main meals and our plates sat for 15-20 min after we finished eating. The waiter finally comes back and we have to ask for a dessert menu. He was adamant that we just get a place of different cheesecakes even though I said we wanted to order from the menu. I finally had to forcefully say we did not want the cheesecake plate. Our desserts then took a very long time, we sat with dirty dishes another 15-20 min until our check was finally delivered. Overall a terrible experience- especially considering how much we spent. We’ve gone to this location for the last 5 years and the last couple of years our experience has steadily gotten worse. We will not be going back to the South Park location and depending on the experience we have at the Uptown location in the future, we may not be going back to Ruth’s Chris. There are too many other steak restaurants at that price range in Charlotte for us to pay for bad service and inconsistency in food quality.

Kudos to Ruth Chris / Southpark for a wonderful dining experience ! Our steaks were cooked to perfection,; the side dishes were excellent & the Manhattan cocktail was the best we have had in Charlotte. Our server Cody could not have been better. He was attentive without hovering.
Thanks for a great meal.

Food was good but service was extremely slow. The server was very polite and I am not sure the slow service was his fault. It seemed the restaurant was running short on servers. At these prices, I expect much faster service, though.

My family and I went to Ruth’s Chris to celebrate my parents 52nd anniversary. Michael, was by far the most professional and best waiter I’ve ever had and the other team members and managers that assisted or stopped by our table made our dining experience and my parents anniversary so memorable and extra special.

We ordered a filet, New York strip, salmon, and several sides and desserts. I eat salmon all of the time and that was by far my favorite. My mom said her tenderloin was the best she’s ever had too. We can’t wait to return again soon. Ask for Michael!

Our waiter, Heath was a nice young man, seemed new @ his job but was very polite. Heath wanted to take our meal order before he took our cocktail order, had the feeling he wanted to rush us. Drinks were rather slow to arrive. Our drink drizzle sticks were never picked up. I DO NOT like when a wait staff wants to clear the table when someone is still eating their dinner which is what happened to us tonight. My husband was done with his meal & I was still completing my meal & a woman tried to take away my husband ‘s plates without asking first. We both spoke up & she seemed surprised but moved away with her tray.
Overall I felt like it a diner atmosphere unlike what we’ve been accustomed to @ a Ruth Chris’.

I came in on a Friday night and the bar was crowded which is a good sign. We had several appetizers and drinks. The food was delicious. I absolutely loved the strawberry basil gimlet. This drink is more of a martini then a gimlet, but very tasty and made strong. Trisha was the bartender at served us and she did an amazing job. she was very attentive. I will definitely return.

We visit Ruth’s Chris a couple of times a year. This most recent visit was for our anniversary. We had great food - trying the seafood tower as an appetizer for the first time. We also had the best waiter, Ken. He was not only service-oriented but was warm, friendly and a pleasure to chat with between table visits. We will definitely request him as our waiter next visit.

We come here two or three times a year and appreciate their consistency very much. My husband gets the bone-in filet (which is a contradiction in terms) and it is always prepared exactly to his liking. And since his liking is very well done, there has to be some serious talent in the kitchen to pull that off without loss of flavor or juiciness. The service is always friendly, professional and prompt, but our server last night, Amber, was exceptional. We've been to several other Ruth's Chris locations, but this one is our favorite.

Christmas Eve and the restaurant was packed! Our server Tony kept a close eye on us throughout the night. As busy as it was the meals arrived at our table in a very reasonable timeframe, which frankly surprised us. My rib eye steak was perfect as were my wife's lamb chops. Sides were good as was desert. If you go ask for Tony, great personality and very attentive. Nice job to the entire staff for doing a great job on a very busy night!

We had a large table of 10, family dinner for Christmas on 12/23/17. The service was a terrible miss. We sat at 7:30, they did not take our order until 8:20 and only after one of the husbands went to find our waitress:/ it was a bummer, will not be back anytime soon. There are just too many great steakhouses within 1/2 mile.

Botched order! Forgot one of three entree’s!? How do you do that? Missed on the sides. Asparagus spears came disguised as lyonnaise potatoes!? Server was mildly apologetic, no comps or considerations. Normally go to the Palm restaurant for this occasion but had a gift card from Hendrix Lexus. I’ll recommend Hendrix partner with a different restaurant. Ruth Chris is not up to Hendrix customer expectations. Going back to the Palm.

Came for a celebratory meal. Unfortunately Ruth's overcooked not one but two steaks. That may be typical of a place like Applebee's, but is unacceptable for a restaurant like this. Del Frisco's is across the street and there are plenty of other steak houses around, so i will not be back.
